INTERACTIVE YOGA PHILOSOPHY
Simple, Applicable, Entertaining
Mike’s lectures aspire to make the complexities of yoga traditions easier to grasp with a light-hearted and approachable style, engaging students interactively in the process. Sessions have involved cartoons, skateboards, balloons, rolls of tape, role-playing and competitions for candy.
Mike blends mild irreverence with moments of deep profundity to create a warm and inviting learning environment, intended for practitioners of all levels to learn and ask questions.
EMBODIED TANTRA ONLINE
25 Hour Online Training
Beautiful Tantra-inspired practices with Satu Tuomela: visualisations, body-centric meditations, and connecting to ourselves through movement. As well as around 15h of interactive lectures with Mike that introduce the key concepts behind Tantra, including the cosmology, its foundational principles, Tantra’s place in history and its applications.
A NEW HISTORY OF YOGA
A modern overview of the history of yoga, based on the latest academic research. Dispelling myths such as yoga is 5,000 years old, and including a reappraisal of classical tantrik thought and how it became incorrectly associated with sorcery and sex.
It includes a two hour lecture with a live audience, featuring the timeline, video clips and a cartoon about an ancient king, a corpse and a tantrik.
Also includes 3 of my short essays on defining yoga, a 5,000 year timeline to trace yogic history, and concepts of what it means to be a tantrika.
